    A Starstruck Phantasmic Romance 
  • Abhorrent Admirer:

    • Downplayed, Danny actually is attracted to Starfire but isn't in love with her. However, he slowly starts to return her feelings as he gets to know her.
    • Played straight in Blackfire's case, though her "love" for Danny is pretty shallow and twisted.
  • All-Loving Heroine: Starfire shows she holds no desire to harm Val-Yor despite his continuing bigotry. Furthermore, when she finds out Danny isn't a Tamaranian, she's more upset with herself for not recognizing how she made him feel around her. Also, despite Blackfire's repeated attempts to destroy her or Val-Yor's racism, Starfire still shows them mercy and asks Danny to do the same.
  • All Women Are Lustful: Starfire and Blackfire are very lustful with Danny.
    • In Starfire's case, she chases Danny across both their universes, clings to him at any given chance, invades his personal space and showers him with hugs and kisses, whether he wants it or not.

    • Blackfire cruelly teases this toward Danny when she kidnaps him, but adds to that she doesn't plan to do it ''now', not that it means she won't keep sexually harassing him.
  • Anticipatory Breath Spray: Hilariously, Danny actually used some upon meeting Starfire and realizes she was interested in him.

  • Aw, Look!

  • Betty and Veronica: Starfire (Betty) and Blackfire (Veronica) for Danny (Archie). Though, played with as Blackfire sees herself as the Veronica but in reality, Danny has no interest in her at all and soon prefers the sweet natured Starfire over the cruel would-be tyrant princess.

  • Everyone Has Standards:
    • Despite being put off by her at times, Danny doesn't like seeing Starfire's feelings get hurt and he got angry when Val-Yor made racist comments towards her.
    • He was also very disgusted with Blackfire's cruelty towards Starfire, even though he was still a little afraid of her at the time.
    • Sam usually expresses relief when a girl who likes Danny goes away, but seeing a genuinely nice girl like Starfire getting her heart broken actually causes her to regret her jealousy.
    • Blackfire and Val-Yor against each other. She's disgusted by his bigotry and he's disgusted by how she treats her own sister.
    • Even with her emotions being extreme, Starfire wouldn't try to make Danny have sex with her.
    • While Sam hates Danny being near Starfire, it's not to the point she'd "let people, even the A-list, get burned alive".
  • Everything Is Better With Princesses: Starfire is princess of her home planet.
  • Evil Counterpart: Blackfire to Starfire. They are both princesses of their home planet Tameran, they are both beautiful, they can both fly, are super strong and can shoot bolts of energy and most of all, they are both in love with the same guy, Danny. However, Starfire is a Spoiled Sweet princess who willingly abdicated the throne and uses her powers to protect others and is beloved by her homeworld. Blackfire, on the other hand, is a sociopathic would-be tyrant who was banished from their homeworld and is not afraid to use her powers to take out those who stand in her way. Also, their relationship with Danny also contrasts. While Starfire originally was very obsessive in her pursuit of Danny, she eventually makes amends to him when she realizes how uncomfortable she made him and Danny in turns, gives her another chance and slowly begins to return her feelings. Blackfire, on the other hand, openly lusts after Danny and and doesn't let his lack of interest stop her from harassing the object of her desire and Danny openly despises her for her lack of empathy towards him and her own sister.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Starfire's eyes are completely green, including a green sclera. It was the first sign that she isn't human for Danny.
  • Exposed to the Elements: Danny is surprised to see Starfire isn't affected by the cold while in a revealing outfit, even when she's in the snow.
  • Fat Bastard: Control Freak is obnoxious to Danny, and his weight is something the ghost boy makes fun of.
  • Femme Fatale: Blackfire isn’t afraid to show off her looks to (a disinterested) Danny.
  • Flying Brick: Both Danny and Starfire are strong and can fly.
  • Forceful Kiss:
    • Starfire gives several to Danny in a Pepé Le Pew fashion.
    • Blackfire gives him a couple too, though they are treated much more negatively.
  • Forgiveness:
    • Danny travels to Starfire to ask for forgiveness for breaking her heart when she found out he's not a Tamaranean. Starfire, being the all around caring type, was willing to do so.
    • Meantime, once she calms down and Starfire regrets causing Danny trouble, Danny was willing to forgive her. It helps that he grew fond of her.
  • Fiery Redhead: Starfire, being a Tamaranean, is already a very emotional girl. Danny's presence makes her even more emotional.
  • Foil:
    • Starfire is briefly compared to Sam. Sam is the daughter of two rich people who she prefers to spend time away from, Starfire is the daughter of royalty who were killed. Sam is human, Starfire isn't. Sam is notably confrontational and prone to expressing dislike instantly to others, Starfire is bubbly and shows kindness to people. Their relationships with Danny differ as well; Sam hides her interest while Starfire is more blatant.
    • Starfire and her older sister Blackfire are both Tameranean princesses who fall in love with Danny at first sight.However,Starfire is kind and uses her powers for good and also truly cares about Danny's feelings, while Blackfire is an evil would be tyrant who doesn't give a darn about Danny's feelings, just her own lust and whims.
  • Genki Girl: Starfire is as bubbly as she is kind. Danny finds it endearing.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar:
    • Danny makes a jab at Control Freak to not worry when he showers in prison, no one will come near him.
    • In chapter 19, Blackfire kidnaps a powerless Danny and locks him in a hotel room, tying him to a chair to proceed to "have some fun with him". It's obvious that had Danny's powers not return when they did and had the others not come to aid him, Blackfire would have likely tried to go further than just making out with him.
    • During Memories, we see a flashback of Danny and Starfire making out in an igloo and Danny ends up shirtless at one point, which REALLY turned her on. Danny was even worried about them moving passed first base before giving in and kissing her back. One has to wonder just how far they would have gone if they have not been interrupted.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Starfire is the princess of her home planet and her signature color is purple.
  • Green-Eyed Monster:
    • As always, Sam gets jealous of any girl trying to get Danny's attention.
    • While she won't admit it, Danny knows that Blackfire is jealous of her sister deep down, due to how their parents and homeworld preferred her over Blackfire, despite her being first in line for the throne.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Technically orange skin, but Starfire fits this.
  • The Glomp: Whenever she is not kissing him, Starfire is giving massive hugs to Danny. According to him, she is "a pretty strong hugger".

  • Headbutt of Love: Starfire frequently does this to Danny, whether he wants it or not.
  • Held Gaze: Starfire tends to stare longingly into Danny's eyes.
  • Hello, Nurse!: Starfire is a very beautiful, super strong alien princess and a famous heroine in her own right that has had her share of male admirers, though her aggressiveness and clinginess is a major turn off for Danny. Case in point, when Danny saw her, he immediately jumped in her arms. All was great until he discovered that she is an alien and saw how extreme her affections can be.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Danny does think Starfire is pretty and eventually returns her feelings..

  • Hopeless Suitor:
    • Blackfire to Danny, due to her evil, sociopathic nature.
    • Control Freak to Starfire, who regards him as a dork and an unimpressive villain.
    • At first, Starfire might have been this to Danny but he does have some genuine affection and sympathy for her and eventually falls for her over time.
  • Hormone-Addled Teenager: Granted, Danny’s ghostly energy is affecting her to extreme levels but her reaction to seeing Danny is to smother him with suffocating hugs and kisses at any chance. She even goes as far as FRENCH kissing him at one point.
  • Hypocrite: Paulina mocks Starfire's broken English by saying "Someone needs to learn how to speak the more righter way". Sam corrects Paulina on the "more righter" part.
  • I Have No Son!: Val-Yor disowned his daughter because he chose a Tamaranean explorer as her boyfriend. Their family disowned him in response.
  • In Love with Love: Starfire. At first, she is heartbroken over believing that Robin will never return her feelings and then longs for 'someone just like her'. Cue Danny, who winds up in her world and strongly resembles a male Tameranean and also has powers which makes real Tameraneas's moods at their most extreme. Starfire sees him, mistakes him for an attractive member of her homeworld, is instantly lovestruck and tries to make him her mate by any means necessary. However, due to Danny's powers making her mood more extreme, she comes off very strongly and winds up scaring away the object of her affection.
  • Innocent Aliens: Starfire means no ill-will to the object of her affections, unlike her sister. It helps Danny warm up to her.
  • Interspecies Romance: Between Danny Phantom, a human-ghost hybrid, and Starfire, a girl from an alien race that evolved from cats.
  • Jerkass: As it turns out, Val-Yor has had no past issues with Tamaraneans that caused his racism. He just thinks their inferior.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • Even though Danny despises them both, he admits Blackfire and Val-Yor have a point on how him not letting Starfire know he's not a Tamaranian isn't a good thing.
    • While she's super unpleasant towards her for jealous reasons, Sam pointed out Starfire used to stalk Danny and violated his personal space despite that the two have long since put it behind them.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Blackfire, who shows she's unpleasant and unlikable whenever she flirts with Danny.
  • Just Eat Gilligan: Danny is aware of the fact that if it wasn't for his own ghostly energy making Starfire act extreme, he probably would have agreed to being her boyfriend if she calmed down.
  • Karma Houdini Warranty:
    • In the series, Val-Yor never gets punished for his attitude towards Starfire since she felt it would justify his views. In this story, he's been dishonored by Vernathia as a movement against bigotry towards Tamaranians found out how he treated the princess of Tamaran. Also, since Danny's not a Tamaranian, he voices his opinions by hitting Val-Yor whenever he gets a chance.
    • We never see what became of the white monster from the final episode of the series. Here, Danny destroys it.
  • Kissing Under the Influence: Played with. Starfire falls madly in love with Danny , who's powers make him a Living Aphrodisiac to members of her species. However, they did not make Starfire fall for Danny, they just made her emotions around him to their most extreme mood possible, meaning that she is, at the very least, sincerely attracted to him.
  • Kiss of Distraction: To prevent her from seeing the duplicate he made to deal with Val-Yor, Danny kisses Starfire. After his duplicate returns, he's about to end it, but decides to continue kissing her.

  • Light Feminine Dark Feminine: Starfire is the Light Feminine, while her older sister Blackfire is the Dark Feminine.
  • Living Aphrodisiac: Ghosts from the Ghost Zone can cause Tamaranians to be more emotional. Because they think he's cute, Danny unintentionally causes Starfire and Blackfire to be very attracted to him.

  • Longing Look: Starfire gives a couple to Danny.
  • Love at First Sight: Starfire experiences this when she sees Danny and mistakes him for a male Tameranian and is instantly lovestruck... A bit of a deconstruction of one as Danny knows him being a Living Aphrodisiac is mostly why Starfire is so extreme in her affections but he is also aware that at least some of her interest in him is genuine.
    • Technically speaking, Danny himself was very taken with Starfire's good looks and seemed open to the idea of becoming her boyfriend, only to be put off by her aggressive affections.
    • Blackfire was more like LUST at first sight, much to Danny's dismay.

  • Nice Guy: Danny. Despite being a little snarky at times, he is a brave, selfless guy who uses his power to protect the people of his home world and even Jump City when he ends up there.

    • To Pepé Le Pew cartoons, only an alien girl mistaking a human/ghost hybrid for a member of her race.
    • Chapter 24's latter half is a huge one to Girls Bravo with Danny having several female Tamaranians getting smitten over him.
  • Sibling Triangle: When Blackfire is introduced, it doesn't take long for the two alien princesses to fight over Danny. Emphasis on FIGHT!
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Starfire is an alien girl with bright red hair and green eyes, and she fluctuates between Danny's Abhorrent Admirer and Love Interest.

  • Snow Means Love: Danny and Starfire's third "date" has them at a snowy mountain just outside of Amity Park.
  • Stalking Is Funny If It Is Female After Male: Clockwork, Frostbite, Pandora and even the Observants seem to have this attitude as they actually just sit back and watch as Danny and Starfire are on their "date" in Paris .

    • Starfire is a (mostly) harmless one.
    • Blackfire, not so much.

  • Super Strength: Danny and Starfire (though Starfire is shown to be stronger at times).
  • Take That!: Chapter 29 has a big one to Teen Titans Go!. Control Freak pitches an idea for a cartoon similar to TTG, since in-canon he rebooted the universe, and Danny responds with this.
    Danny: I think, it'd be funny… for like a portion of the time. Because they're superheroes and aren't meant to be just comedy only. Plus, saying waffles like a million times isn't funny, it get annoying very fast. Just like how whatever humor you have in mind could get annoying very fast. It sounds very poorly thought out and something only meant for like once in a while, not a long time or even a marathon a month. I'm assuming you marathoning it means it would need like a buttload of episodes, otherwise you'd be replaying episodes, which would be a terrible thing to do as it shows you shouldn't make a long marathon if you don't have enough material to do it. Also, fart jokes are like bottom of the barrel and only funny like once in a while, not every minute. And why would staring at pizza involve time travel? It's like you choose to not think this through because you don't really respect your target audience enough. I'm sure you think they'd think it'd be funny… until they get tired of the same stupid thing over and over again and at best it's only an occasional laugh and nothing more.

  • The "I Love You" Stigma:
    • Part of what repells Danny from Starfire is her saying they are soulmates not five minute after meeting each other.

  • Unwanted Harem:
    • Both Starfire and Blackfire were both eager to have Danny for their mate, obsessively chasing him for a time.
    • Danny gains one on Tamaran, thanks to it being their equivalent of Valentine's Day, which is also a sort of mating season. Thankfully, they back off when Danny and Starfire have their Relationship Upgrade.
    • Chapter 33 has Starfire, who through a series of events gain a copy of Danny's powers and gets exposed to ghostly energy, making her behave amorously once again.

    • Danny sort of fears Starfire were to become this if she knew his real species.

    Do Over 
  • Adaptational Wimp: In the series, Johnny Rancid was skilled enough to avoid all members of the Titans for a while. Here, he gets his butt kicked by Starfire only.
  • Adorkable: Danny around Starfire.
  • Amazon Chaser: Just like the first time around, Danny is impressed by the fact that Starfire is a superhero and can kick serious butt.
  • Amnesiac Lover: This story involves Danny losing all memories of Starfire and their relationship. A semi-bittersweet version since a cure is available and Starfire was told it would be temporary, so she decides to use this opportunity to "do over".
  • Big Damn Kiss: At the end of the date, Starfire gives Danny an epic "first kiss" after asking for his consent. The end result was Danny too smitten to form proper words.
  • Call-Back: This entire story is deliberately to harken back to when Starfire and Danny first met and their first proper date.
  • Coy, Girlish Flirt Pose: Starfire does this several times to charm Danny. It works.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Just like in the story, Robin is jealous of Starfire and Danny's relationship.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Once Starfire tells Danny who Johnny Rancid is, Danny considers him "a human Johnny 13" who "looks even nastier".
